Finding Your Role in God’s Big Project

by

“We have to find our role in God’s big project, the one that stretches across the border from this life into the next.” (Cornelius Plantinga Jr.) In this message from Nehemiah 1, guest speaker John Waldrop teaches how revival came to God’s people through the obedience of Nehemiah, and the example it gives to the church today.

Be Transformed!

by

Grace that does not transform our lives on the outside and the inside is not the grace of God received through faith in Jesus. It is a weak and worldly “grace” that does not deliver us from sin and death. Give all your body and mind to the worship of God. Leave nothing for yourself, but trust God to give you infinitely more that you can imagine.

The Lawful Use of the Law

by

The law itself is good, but it is not good news since it displays our unworthiness before it. But we will never accept the good news of the Gospel if we are foolish enough to think we have no sin.

God’s Righteousness vs. Man’s Righteousness

by

Religious people often stumble over Jesus and miss God’s salvation because they depend upon good deeds and religious rituals to satisfy God’s demand for righteousness. But God’s demand for righteousness is satisfied only through faith in Jesus who offers it to us as a free gift.

Pursuing Righteousness By Faith

by

If we come to God through our own efforts to be righteous, we will stumble over Jesus Christ and be ruined forever. If we come to God through faith, we will have Jesus Christ as our cornerstone and receive righteousness and life in Him.

God Has Mercy on Whom He Desires, Part 2

The Offense and the Opportunity of the Cross

by

The central message of Good Friday is this: Jesus died to rescue us from our sins. In this Good Friday message, Pastor Ritch teaches from Matthew 27:22-54, about four truths of the cross to help us receive God’s grace in Jesus Christ.

The Hope of Our Resurrection
